A notorious New York porn king
is being sought by cops who want to bust him for
allegedly pimping call girls in a
multimillion-dollar Manhattan operation, The Post
Jason Sylk Itzler, 37, disappeared from
his Hoboken home after New York cops raided the
Worth Street offices of his NY Confidential escort
agency last Friday, law-enforcement sources.
Itzler is on parole from a New Jersey prison,
where he served six months of a five-year sentence
for smuggling 3,869
"ecstasy" pills on a flight from Amsterdam
During the raid, cops arrested six women and a
man who worked at NY Confidential on such charges
as promoting prostitution, money laundering,
falsifying business records and criminal possession
of a controlled substance.
The 79 Worth St. office was used as headquarters
for the agency, sources said.
Customers called to order one of nearly 100
women who signed on as contractors for the company,
and paid average rates of $800 per hour to have sex
with them, sources said.
Higher-priced hookers could be had for up to
$2,000 an hour, according to the sources.
NY Confidential -- whose ad in New York
magazine boasts of being "The Ultimate Girlfriend
Experience!" -- grossed an estimated $300,000 per
month, or $3.6 million annually, sources said.
"I run a great agency -- I don't break the
laws," Itzler told The Post last month.
"I've got the cops on my side. I know everyone.
I know this industry. I'm a
lawyer -- I know what I can and can't do,"
said Itzler, a law school graduate who never took
the bar exam.
Itzler, who also uses the last names of Sylk and
Lubell, has bragged about making millions operating
"900" telephone sex lines in the 1990s.
He first made waves in New York City by setting
up a faux fashion model agency that was used to
lure pretty women into his real operation, a
cybersex site featuring women masturbating
on-camera and chatting with clients over the
Itzler's short tenure at that game ended after
he was forced out by partners in 2001, just before
his drug bust.
